Leonora Carrington

These photos were taken in Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City. The exposition at the time was Cuentos Magicos (Magic Tales), a chronological presentation of the work from Leonora Carrington.

She was born in an upper-class family in northern England, live in France where she joined the surreal movement, but it was later in her life until Carrington moved to Mexico where her art thrived. She struggled to fit in her home country as well in France and Spain. However, she found in Mexico a place to call home.

A newsletter

I created a newsletter for one of my class. I believe there is a company called Juiceology out there but this is one is Juicelogy and very different identity.

This is a fragment of the newsletter.

Do you like it? Do you like the juice combination?

I would try it 😉

Paris plus Wine

 

I created this series of illustration for my class, I used photoshop for this project.

This was part of my creative brief:

The style has to be pleasant with warm and optimistic colors.  An image of a wine bottle will be in the middle surrounded by landmarks of Paris. Some other photo elements will help the image to create unity, such as flowers.

The concept will have elements of Art Nouveau but always trying not to appear outdated.

Did I succeed? You tell me.
